Hungry Girl Cannoli-Stuffed French Toast Nuggets

Submitted by: KCHRISTY6

Introduction

Bread stuffed with a warm chocolatey/cheesy filling. Adapted from Hungry Girl 1-2-3 Recipe Book. The only change I made was swapping out a little cream cheese in place of some of the ricotta.

  • Didn't try them out yet, but according to the egg beaters website you can substitute 2 real eggs for the egg beaters portion in case you don't have it handy - 5/14/11

  • These didn't taste too bad, but they were awful to try and cook. They fell apart because the top of the bun would seperate from the bottom causing the cheese to stick to the pan. Then when I tried turning them they tore apart. Probably will not make again because of the mess they make. - 1/11/11

    I've never had the problem of them falling apart, but I'm sorry to hear that they didn't work out for you. If you liked the taste though, another option might be to put the filling between bread slices and make them as "french toast grilled cheese sandwiches" and eat with a knife and fork.
